Stuffing slinky minkee nappies

Postby LloydyG » Tue Jul 28, 2009 9:46 pm

Hiya all,

I'm currently using slinky minkee nappies at nighttime, and I'm stuffing them with a folded up cotton terry square, which turns out so bulky so I'm wondering what everyone else uses to stuff slinkys for nighttime? I was wondering if there is a more slimline alternative!
Thanks,

Laura

I don't specifically know about slinkis (as I don't have one), but stuff standard minkis and all other pockets with bamboo, soy and hemp inserts - they are all slimmer and more absorbent than cotton in my opinion.

I use bamboo, or hemp with bamboo on top - you get far more absorbancy than you get with the same size cotton insert. I generally use my own homemade bamboo terry inserts.

Hi, I use standard minkis but i guess they are similar. I recently swapped to stuffing them with the babeco bamboo terry squares { saw them recommended on here}, soo soft and much thinner, i use 2 squares and an easy peasy hemp insert however he is still feeding alot at night!
This is still a little dry in the am so could possibly put less in.

I also us bamboo terry squares in my minkis, 2 of them (sometimes 3) at a time, folded to fit and them with a hemp booster of some sort just for good measure

Minki nappes are a bulky nappy anyway, even with no stuffing in they are bulkier than all of our daytime nappies :D

Hi all,

Thanks for all the replies to my post, I will have a look for some pre-loved bamboo/hemp inserts, and give them another go.

I use bamboo with hemp underneath, I find that the perfect combination for us :)
